Miss Fluffy Rice

Miss Fluffy's Rice Cook Book manages to achieve the one major goal of all quality cookbooks: to create the perfect blend of irresistibly cute spokescharacter and suspicious dinnertime recipe ideas. This particular set of suspicious recipes was brought to us by the Rice Council and was published in the early 1960s.

Front and back covers - The magical Miss Fluffy and her rice-enhanced tomato and parfait

Plantation Chowder

A mouthwatering platter of Shrimp and Rice Mousse.

Rice Medley, though I'm more interested in the dish filled with the segmented tomato-cheese items.

Taking well-molded foods to another level, this is Rice Indienne. The flower-shaped mold is just a serving suggestion, but the book suggests that it's best enjoyed with a game of cards!

Pink 'n Pretty Parfaits - The prettiest way to end your party!
